Beneteau’s new flagship, the Oceanis Yacht 60, is the yard’s third model to come out of the collaboration with Lorenzo Argento and Roberto Biscontini that started with the First Yacht 53 three years ago.

The design philosophy follows on from that of the First Yachts 53 and the Oceanis Yachts 54, which share the same hull design. Designers Biscontini and Argento have created a world of refinement in this 60-footer ocean-cruising yacht.

With a hull length of almost 18 metres, the Oceanis Yacht 60 has an elegant and sophisticated silhouette while preserving its elegant design and excellent marine qualities.

Built in Saint Gilles Croix de Vie, France, the Oceanis Yacht 60 was among the seven-yacht Beneteau line-up at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival.

Exterior design

The new cockpit layout provides a sense of ease and security: access to the foredeck is at the same level via deep side decks.

The two helm stations have been optimised so that all manoeuvres can be carried out without leaving the helm. On-board systems such as Ship Control and Seanapps provide control of all on-board systems and allow for easy maintenance.

The bimini is available in two configurations. The rigid version has a central section wich slides forward to adjust the amount of cover in the cockpit. The crew will therefore always find the best compromise between protection and ventilation.

The generous dinghy garage holds a 2.8-metre jet-propelled tender. This tender is operated by an electric winch with a double wire system and guiding rollers to make it effortless to launch and raise.

Interior design

You are met with a great deal of space and light as you go down the companionway, and an overall impression of larger proportions.

The Oceanis Yacht 60’s galley is now positioned midship, where you are less likely to be bothered by movement, and it is full beam, with storage and a fridge to port, and a sink, oven and dishwasher to starboard. There is substantial storage space and the length of the worktop is exceptional.

The galley extends across the entire width: on the port side, storage and refrigeration; on the starboard side, the sink, the oven and the dishwasher. There is substantial storage space and an innovative worktop layout.

The large saloon where six people can sit around the table facing the relaxation area with its soft sofa. The curved chart table allows the navigator to participate in all the discussions on board.

Available in a three-cabin version with three heads, the Oceanis Yacht 60 comes with two different finishes: walnut as standard and light oak on option.

Many moulded wood features blend harmoniously with large lacquered white surfaces and are matched with exclusive upholstery. Together they create a distinctly stylish atmosphere.

The luxurious and relaxing owner’s cabin offers privacy and a stunning view of the sea. The bed is only revealed on the starboard side once you have passed the private head, which is equipped with ample storage space.

With a clean design, optimised layout and top-quality fittings, the new Oceanis Yacht 60 is a clear step in pursuit of excellence.
